    Go to Settings>iTunes & App Stores>Automatic Downloads and turn off the switch for Updates (no green showing). Turning off the Apps switch will prevent apps purchased or downloaded to other devices from appearing on the selected device. This will stop automatic app updates, requiring you to update apps manually.

    Thanks, "Apps" was turned off but I didn't realise there's a separate button for Updates
